This is my favorite season because it gets cold and you can wear sweaters and long socks every day and you can hold hands and watch the white clouds of your breath float up into the sky and drink lattes and hot chocolate and wear floppy hats with pom poms and watch the world turn into a glittering white forrest
Damn son our uterus stretches like 5x the size and then contracts and pushes a 7 pound baby out of a small tube into life if you think that isn’t metal as fuck get out of my face
YOUR ORGANS THOUGH IM SO SORRY LADIES
How the hell do woman survive this?
Seriously it surprises me how many people don’t know a couple things about pregnancy and babies:
women would not survive 10 months of pregnancy they would die
A baby is nowhere near as developed as it should be to be out in the world at 9 months, but the human body has not evolved to push anything past the size of the head out, everything else the baby is can stretch and squash but the head
the vagina can’t handle anything bigger than the head at 9 months of development so we have to give birth.
But babies actually need longer than that, really, it’s why they’re such a mess when they’re born and why they’re completely dependent on care, can’t walk, can’t do anything. Note most other animals can when they are born. Babies are born too early, it’s kind of a huge and secret flaw in human evolution. I found it really interesting, so thought I’d share.
This is actually incorrect. Human babies aren’t born “too early” per say. In fact they are born when they become mature enough to survive with parental care outside the womb. Babies simply have a prolonged infancy that is found in most forms of New World Primates which allows for us to develop more cognitively instead of physically early on in life. Our lack of physical development at birth is the reason why we can solve problems, use tools, and possess cognitive depth.
We are not “born early” due to a “secret flaw in evolution”

Sometimes you walked a path all alone, and you wonder what life would be like to walk it with another person.
Weddings are so lovely.
Depends on the death count.
